A dynamic and exciting wealth management firm are looking to hire a Management Accountant. The job has arisen due to my client's remarkable growth over the last 18 months (including winning several new contracts). My client has a preference for candidates who are pursuing an accountancy qualification, i.e. ACA or ACCA.

Candidates should have 3-5 years relevant finance experience within a fast paced environment. It is imperative that you used the accountancy package, Xero and have VAT and corporation tax experience. Please don't apply for this role if you have no experience with Xero or have no tax experience.

The role will be reporting in to the CFO and the duties include balance sheet reconciliations, profit and loss analysis, variance analysis, producing statutory accounts, accruals and prepayments and reviewing the financial control process. You must be able to investigate anomalies with general ledger codes and be able to explain the reasons for the difference.

Candidates will also have to be comfortable doing transactional duties, i.e. maintaining the accounts payable function, bank reconciliations and cash management. It's a very dynamic working environment and candidates must demonstrate previous experience of scrutinising and reviewing processes.

Candidates should have 3-5 years relevant finance experience within a fast paced environment. It is imperative that you used the accountancy package, Xero and have VAT and corporation tax experience. Please don't apply for this role if you have no experience with Xero or have no tax experience.


You should be a very engaging, assertive and confident in person. The role includes some client facing duties, so you need to be somebody who can converse with people at all levels of the business. Candidates need to be strong enough to challenge senior managers and stakeholders. The CFO sits on the Board and you will be able to translate your ideas to very senior and influential members of staff.


There is a significant amount of Excel use in the role, so candidates should be confident building pivot tables and v-look ups from scratch. Exposure to macros would be an excellent bonus. Relevant finance experience within financial services is highly desirable. Candidates should ideally have 3-5 years relevant management accounting experience.

This role is incredibly progressive and will suit candidates who are ambitious, proactive and thrive on responsibility. My client is looking for someone who can be a future Financial Controller or CFO.
